debates have not moved the numbers all that much. four years ago when barack obama debated john mccain, mccain was down by five points when he went into his debate, and when he came out of the debate, he was down by six points. virtually no change. i think events on the ground, perceptions of the economy, economic news, perhaps things from the middle east still could have a bigger impact than these debates. cheryl: scott rasmussen, it's fascinating to see what your numbers are showing us, and they have been changing over the last several weeks. scott, thank you. >> thank you, cheryl. cheryl: well, still to come, everyone, ann coulter is going to be joining me with a look at her new book, "mugged." and coming up next, getting criticized from the inside. william isaac is going to tell us how washington failed america during the massive financial crisis. ally bank. why they're always there to talk. i love you, james. don't you love me? i'm a robot. i know. i know you're a robot! but there's more in you than just circuits and wires! uhhh.

the debates will go. once you cast your vote, there's no going back and saying what -- i don't think obama did very well. i want to change my vote. i don't like this early voting. never have. >> early voting helps democrats, maybe early voting isn't so good if you're a republican. >> i think we're going to find all kinds of fraud going on in early voting suddenly. the other case laura ingraman in the right are making questioning polls in general, it's -- it's -- the desperation is pathetic. one could connect it to the general, you know, disbelieving in science thing, but really, at this point to say no, no, no, all these polls, except rasmussen, are faulty because they oversample-- somes is just sad. >> this is the disavow of reality that seems to be permeating the romney campaign and joe scarborough highlighted this morning. i will highlight it today, this afternoon. an op-ed in the "wall street journal" by jason riley that says mr. romney would do better to focus more on reducinged his unforced errors and less on the fourth estate's political bias if whining about the liberal media was a win
to undergird. shift it to obama. talk about him not being capable as a president and then debate obama's performance. quit having those self inflicted wounds that tend to damage this campaign and the reporters have to report on it. of course you do. it's very salacious, grainy video. it's the good stuff. the behind the scenes stuff. of course you're going to report it. >> it doesn't help when you mention 97% according to to some poll i've never seen. 97% of white house reporters voting democratic. it's a conspiracy theory. the same time ronald reagan won the presidency twice. george w. bush won the presidency twice. with the same so-called media liberal out there. why don't you focus on getting the guy elected and showing what his strong points are? if you do that maybe you'd have a chance but the problem is -- >> i agree. >> people don't know what mitt romney stand for. even republicans are concerned about this. >> i agree. >> the last word, thomas, we tend to have a conversation about how there are 41 days left. there aren't. parts of the country are already voting and as you pointed
than that -- more of that in the debates. president obama and governor romney have different views about where to take this country internationally. host: where you expecting from the speech by the iranian leader today? guest: mach mod ahmadinejad -- mahmoud ahmadinejad is a fool. er.is a israel pahat denies the holocaust. he lost most of his power. he is not the most significant leader in iran. i would expect a lot of lies about the united states. iran has very low support. they have support from hezbollah and the syrian government. most countries want nothing to do with the iranians. they have been violating their commitments on their nuclear enrichment programs. it is a program on the defensive. president obama has been doing a good job of pushing the iranians into a corner and we should continue that policy matter who wins the election and prevent them from getting a nuclear weapon. host: susan from new york. caller: good morning. their comments are very great. i have two questions, one regarding libya. one is regarding libya. the you think the al qaeda attacks and on the guy t
's not unconceivable mitt romney could do that. the key with debates does president obama perform poorly or mitt romney well. the key with all des what's the moment. is there a big moment that op ppt about the ndhang dynamic in a big way. governor romney will not only have to perform well in general because president obama's likely to perform well in general but he has to have moment like that or two moments like that in the first debate that will make people see him with new eyes. that's a very- never done tha before but he could do. joeroulde id had no chance but did it eight years ago. >> the other thing is you're running into this early voting thing as well, which it's not actually 40 some odd days until the election, probably a narrowerwindow, looking at colorado 80% of theeople that voted in corn ie 2008 election cycle voted early. part of the problem for mitt romney is the ground game issue. the reason that democrats do better is because president obama has a and the dnc a fierce get out the vote and early registrationrive and ground game. >> i don't thi ttar vooi t make the debates any less imp
to do. president obama is a good debater. mitt romney is a good debater. i don't see any one of them falling flat. that's the problem for the romney debate. >> chris kofinis, did i just hear you not trying to manage expectations? >> i'm not good on expectations. the reality is they're both good debaters. >> is that true, john? do the debates favor one or the other? >> people know he's a very good debater but the problem he has is he still has to bring a record that i think bemost accounts is remarkably mediocre. i can tell you having run those debates. he knows basically how to deliver a message. >> john brabender, chris kofinis, thank you. >> thank you. >>> also this morning, 14 are dead, 14 others wunlded after two major explosions in syria. both were car bombs set off at the syrian army headquarters. a third explosion went off near the prime ministry. the targets were syria's top military commanders. >> things are calmer in greece but it got eggly on the streets of athens earlier. they're protesting new austerity measures. police were throwing tear gas because some were throwing m

to be an issue in the debates between governor romney and president obama. it is such an important issue. host: via twitter, mr. ambassador -- what do you think? guest: i am not sure whether he is referring to regime change in iraq or iran. it is very difficult for the united states to go in and plan to topple the regime of another country. we did so successfully in march 2003. our military was brilliant in their offensive into iraq and update his/saddam hussein. but then we found out that we had tuesday -- and dislodge saddam hussein. but then we found out we had to stay, and everybody knows the tragic story of what happened. the united states needs to be the strongest country in the world. at the same time, we need to know the value of restraint. we cannot solve everybody's problem. we cannot over use and ask the military to do too much. we cannot fight our way through every problem. president obama -- this is what president obama has been talking about, and i hope this comes up in the debates. we need to return to diplomacy. backed by force, of course, and a strong military but normally, bu

days blocked out for the debate preps. president obama has had to cancel out some because of what's going on in the middle east. >> we're taking note of the fact that the romney campaign has built this up as a pivotal moment. they're looking for a reagan debate type of moment. he took the week of the democratic convention down to prepare for the debates. but i don't think americans will judge this on style point ace loan. he's got to be specific about his policy. >> big ben, i want to interrupt because president ahmadinejad is now speaking at the u.n. >> translator: he's chosen companions and all the underlying messengers. oh, god, hasten the emergence of your chosen beloved. grant him good health and victory. make us his best companions and and all those who submit to his rightfulness. mr. president and laetds and gentlemen. i thank the almighty god for being able to participate. we're gathered toque to build a better lifer for the entire community and for our nations. coming from iran, the land of glory and beauty, the land of knowledge, culture, wisdom, morality and crazele of
